2005 Nissan Quest Air Conditioner Clicking Noise

25

Asked by Jul 08, 2013 at 02:38 PM about the 2005 Nissan Quest 3.5 SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 Nissan Quest.  When I turn the AC on there is a clicking noise coming from behind the dash that gets quicker as I increase the fan speed.  The AC still works and blows plenty of cool air, but I'm afraid it will break if I don't address whatever is making the noise.  Any suggestions?

The fan blades might be hitting something this would explain why the sound goes faster as you increase fan speed- hard to say for sure without hearing the noise- either some part of the fan housing has come loose or there's a chance that something has entered through the vents-

Thanks! Do you know if the fan is difficult to reach?

I'm not sure about your car- but generally, yes, they have difficult access and working under the dash is a pain- in the neck- a good garage shouldn't charge too much- ask them to listen- it might be as little as $100- but if it's a bad garage, it could get bad- if you're handy with a screwdriver, you might want to at least take a look- start by taking panels off under the dash on the passenger side- MAYBE it's somethin' easy

Have you changed the cabin filter? Hopefully it's not the fan as it's on top of heater box behind radio and dash has to be removed to replace it.

I believe noise came after the garage changed both air cabin filer & engine filter. I just wondering -- will this noise hurt the car engine?

No it has nothing to do with the engine..

Hi. Yes, something must have been stuck in there hitting the fan blades. Changed the cabin filters which were pretty dirty, and a couple of days later the noise disappeared. I'm guessing changing the filters or maybe increased air flow was enough to dislodge whatever was in there. Thanks!
